Double scorer against Australia in the first match of the Blues in this World Cup, Giroud found the net in the 44th minute.

Served by Kylian Mbappé, he freed himself from the Polish marking thanks to a sharp call then scored with a left-footed strike which deceived Wojciech Szczęsny and freed France just before half-time.

In a twist of fate, the AC Milan striker had never scored in a World Cup knockout game.

In 2014, he distinguished himself with two goals against Switzerland during the pools, while his 2018 World Cup had been the subject of many comments due to his lack of realism in front of goal.

The French international had finished the competition with the title of world champion but without the slightest goal.

Four years later, he is at the top of the ranking of the best scorers in the history of the Blues after scoring one of the most important goals of his career in the selection.

The ranking of the top scorers of the France team:

1. Olivier Giroud: 52 goals

2. Thierry Henry: 51 goals

3. Antoine Griezmann: 42 goals

4. Michel Platini: 41 goals

5. Karim Benzema: 37 goals
